I have no interest in OZ at all. But I know disney come thorugh with effects and James Franco is likeable and Mila Kunis is crazy hot. It was pretty good, and for me to like a pg movie means alot. Solid story and great effects. The IMAX really made it pop.

The Effects were incredible...
May be a bit to much for younger children (say under 13-14)
Seen it in IMAX 3D and regular 3D...
IMAX is the way too go ~ It's worth the extra few bucks if you have it.
Now if they would just get WICKED on the Big Screen!

I really enjoyed watching the movie in IMAX and 3D, I was delighted at the black and white beginning that transitioned to the spectacular color of Oz. The characters were very beliievable and I was drawn into the story. I watched it with my 5 year old daughter and it was delightful to see her react to the scenes. I will cherish this movie for the rest of my life since I was able to share it with her.

I loved the graphics and all the bells and whistles. The storyline could have been better. The witches power wasn't in her necklace in the original wizard of oz. it was in her ruby red shoes that the farmer chick landed her house on. The wizard wizard was less than expected. I was hoping he would somehow be great and powerful, but all he wanted was some ass. The final scenes of the movie was good though. If you loved the Wizard of OZ, you must see this movie. I just wish they would have followed the original storyline more.

The CGI, stunning, and 3-D unlike I had ever seen before. China Girl, was my fav character in the movie, and she deserves an Oscar for her performance. I fell in love with this adorable, little orphaned child made out of china, right down to the clinking sound she made whenever she blinked or moved her joints.
I must also mention the comedy in the film took away from the story line, and cheapened the movie a bit. I don't mind a little creative humor to captivate the audience, however, it became a bit corny, and distracting after awhile. It was sort of akin to what Scary Movie, was to the original Scream movie.
Michelle Williams,was by far the best actor in this movie, and believe she carried the other character's weaker performances. I would have liked Glinda, a little more glamorous, and regal as was the original Glinda.
Mila Kunis, as WW of the West-disappointing.. She wasn't believable as a WW. Her face-- too round, and voice sounded like she had a sinus infection.
